La Manga Club, 13 July 2015. Triathlon is the latest on-trend sport, in addition to being an all-round event which combines three of the most popular sporting disciplines: swimming, cycling and running. It is also very versatile and can be adapted to the requirements of any participant. The La Manga Club Triathlon Academy has taken the young ones into consideration and has therefore, decided to organise a summer programme aimed at children aged between 7 and 15. If you have ever considered a family holiday at La Manga Club and you would like your children to take up triathlon, don’t hesitate in signing them up to the academy. 

The programme will take place over three weeks:from 20th – 24th July, from 27th to 31st July and from 3rd to 7th August.

Under 15, for children aged between 12 and 15. This group will be taught about the technical aspects of the sport as well as an introduction to specific distances by category. The timetable will be from Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm.
